Finding stitches.

I don't mean to be gross, but I have a question that's been bothering me all day. I had a TVH three weeks ago. Today I noticed something in my underwear that I assume is a chunk of stitches, but am not sure, and was wondering if anyone else has experienced this. It appeared to be a very small piece of tissue with about three stretchy clear threads about 1/4 inch long attatched to it. I have been overdoing it with the housework, etc., as I have felt so great since the surgery. Have I torn something loose, or is this normal? Help!

Finding stitches.

I had TAH, and haven't experienced what you are, but through my readings here, have heard of lots of woman finding stitches, in there panties around week 3. Can be brownish or purplish, tiny peices of thread. Hope this helps. But it can never hurt to call the Dr. Thats what they are there for. Cathy

Please take care of yourself! Three weeks is too early to be overdoing it on the housework.
